Have you ever wondered if meditation is for you, whether you could still your mind, slow down and switch off? Or you don’t have the time in your busy schedule, but you are feeling exhausted all the time, weary of life?
If you fit into the above you need meditation, if you just crash out on the sofa of an evening so exhausted from your demanding life, then it is time to focus our minds.
Meditation gives us the rest we need as we are focusing our minds on mindfulness and our breathing, taking ourselves into a state of deep relaxation, which allows us to switch off and go into ourselves and our bodies. If you are new to meditation just start with 10 minutes, sitting up straight, relax your muscles and focus on your breath, let your mind drift and relax, counting with each breath.
You will feel the benefits almost immediately, it will lengthen your attention span, enhance your self-awareness and control your stress levels.
“The goal of meditation isn’t to control your thoughts, it’s to stop letting them control you”
